What function should I use to generate random numbers and how do I set the random number seed to the timer? I''m using Visual C++ .net, just in case that makes any difference (I don''t know if it does or not)

you use .NET, so just use the Random class, like this
Random rnd = new Random();
int i = rnd.Next(0, 9);

this will generate an integer between 0 and 9
